Boeing Boeing (York Theatre Royal, 24th February 2009)

I remember seeing Boeing Boeing when I was a teenager and finding it really funny. I seemed to remember its fast pace and the how timing was really important to the comedy. When I saw it again at York Theatre Royal, I realised how out of date the comedy was. I suddenly felt uncomfortable at the sexism, and with the stereotypes. It was well acted, the set was marvellous and the colours vibrant, but for me, it was not theatre for the 21st century.
